My name is Dave. I am a long time gardener and am looking at starting a hive in order to increase pollination rates in our little community garden. Not sure if this is practical or not, which is why I am here. Little bit about me, I am a registered veterinary technician, falconer, and father of a beautiful 18 month old girl.

I am very familiar with the use of forums from my falconry, so hopefully will be able to surf through older threads and find most of my information before I start asking questions. Time to start reading!
